FOX host strikes bystander: Pete Hegseth West Point Drummer

FOX host strikes bystander: Pete Hegseth West Point Drummer, No idea how we missed this, but here it goes: During last Sunday’s broadcast of Fox & Friends, co-host Pete Hegseth tossed an axe to tease an upcoming segment on timbersports, missed the target, and hit a marching band percussionist standing in the distance.

West Point’s legendary Hellcats marching band played throughout the show, in honor of Flag Day and the Army’s 240th birthday. One of its lead drummers, Jeff Prosperie, performed adjacent to the caged section where Hegseth grabbed the axe and tossed it at a large wooden board for a segment tease.

The axe flew over the target by more than a few inches and hit someone off-camera, behind the board. Fox showed Hegseth grimacing, while bystanders cupped their mouths in shock. The cameras then cut to the marching band, playing out the tease with the drum solo, while Prosperie walked around in the background, visibly grabbing his right arm. We never actually see the axe hit the drummer (more on that later).
